Kaiden loves rocks. He is always picking them up when we go for a walk or whenever he is outside. Showing us quartz, petrified wood, etc. He knows everyone's birthstone (and agrees that us lucky people born in February have the best one)! He was in 7th heaven when we stopped at this rock shop in Estes Park. Both of his brothers were asleep so he and I got the chance to browse on our own for a few minutes.

The boys love to throw rocks into the lake and stream. Gavin became hooked as he watched his brothers.
He studied them for a bit and then set off to find his own rock.
He didn't often get the rock all the way to the water, but that didn't seem to bother him.
Whenever a rock would hit the water, he would crouch down and then stand up and yell splash!
After that it was hard to keep him away from the water - he kept yelling splash.
The simple things are often the most fun. I remember loving to throw rocks into the rivers and my Dad telling me I would fill them up. Nathan loved doing this also and now all 3 boys.

We went to Rocky Mountain Park and hiked around a lake and had a picnic.
The boys love climbing the rocks and running up the hills. This rock was low so I lifted Gavin up. He was not too happy that Trevin was holding onto him.
This rock was much higher and try as hard as he could, he couldn't make it up.
A fact this one was not too happy about!

It seems like it always gets chilly and rainy on Field Day. Kaiden's was in the morning and jackets were welcome.
Waiting his turn in a relay race.
In the gym for a game of Hungry Hungry Hippo.
Trevin's was in the afternoon and it had warmed up, but it still looked like rain. He was very good in the bouncing ball race.
In the gym for his turn at Hungry Hungry Hippo.
We made it through before the rain started.

Gavin loves being outside. One mention of outside, bye-bye or shoes he heads for the door. One day before the boys were out of school, we headed out to sweep out the garage. Gavin took Trevin's broom and helped.
He found the stash of water guns and found that even if you can't squeeze the trigger you can shake it and get the water out.
